Our Commitment as an Open and Affirming Church
We, the congregation of Central Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation. With the grace of God, we commit ourselves to being a congregation that includes all persons, embracing diversity and not restricting participation because of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, age, mental and physical ability, as well as racial, ethnic and socio-economic background.
We welcome all persons, whether members or non-members, to share in the full life and ministry of this church including fellowship, worship, sacraments and ceremonies and celebrations; in the shared responsibilities of stewardship and living in a covenantal relationship; in the shared blessings of the right to marry or celebrate a commitment to a person of one's choosing, in the right to celebrate a loved one's life in a memorial service; and to receive pastoral care.
- Central Congregational Church is an open and affirming congregation.

Music is Central!
There is a place for you at Central Church - join others in making music, having fun and serving the church.
Assist in worship every Sunday morning and have a great time doing it. No evening rehearsals, we meet at 9 am on Sundays. Open to everyone (high school age and higher.)
Make a memory you will always carry with you by singing in the Youth Choir! We rehearse after service at 11:30 on Sunday mornings and have a good time making music together.
Called the Gospel Choir, but we are more that that. We sing, we have amazing pot lucks, and even better conversations. We would love to have you join us.
Central Church Band
The Central Church band named "New Revised Standard Band" or "NRSB", provides the opportunity to serve God by using the gift of music. If you have ever wanted to perform or play with a band, come play with us. Open to all ages and abilities!
"Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy"
